Eight minutes later, we played poorly on our side of the field, and the opponents took their opportunity after a pass from the left side – 1:1. We were the best team on the field, and in the 40th minute Brian Peña played excellently individually – at the end of the attack, the Spaniard sent the ball into the corner of the goal. After the first half, we were in the lead with 2:1.
In the second half, in one of the episodes, our team was saved by goalkeeper Rihards Matrevics, but in general, we were definitely stronger. In the 61st minute, Marko Regža scored the second goal of the game from a few meters distance – 3:1.
